Anthony Franklin "Tony" Kaml

January 13, 1947 ~ March 31, 2019 (age 72)

Anthony F. “Tony” Kaml

            Anthony “Tony” Kaml of Buck Lake, MN, early in the morning of March 31, Tony “Papa” Kaml lost his battle with Lewy Body Dementia. 

He left this world peacefully and surrounded by his family.  He was welcomed to his next journey by his parents Anton and Clara, son Andrew, and brothers, Stanley and Lawrence. 

Tony will be sadly missed by his wife Linda, sons; Anthony (Keri) and Chris (Sally), daughter Clara Jo (Terry), and grandchildren Katerina, Zachariah, Zander, Bodie and Decker, brothers; Charles (Carol), Donald, and one very special mother-in-law, Joyce Hardecopf. 

We will always be grateful for the amazing man he became once he took on the title of “Papa” with his grandkids.  Tony enjoyed life and loved to visit.  He was a miner, a business owner, a farmer, a snowmobile trail builder, and a man who could fix anything.  He loved polka music and dancing.  He had a very special place in his heart for the coffee times in the Nashwauk Lutheran Church.  Anthony Kaml died at the age of 72.  Tony and his wife Linda spent 49 years together.

            A celebration of Tony’s life will be 12:00 pm, Saturday, April 13, 2019 at Nashwauk Lutheran Church in Nashwauk.  The Rev. Aaron Lofgren will officiate.  Visitation will be one hour prior to the noon service at the church on Saturday.  A private interment will be held this summer in Greenbush, MN.  Arrangements are with the Dougherty Funeral Home of Hibbing.
